    Is it safe to have the flu vaccine?

    It is safe to have the flu vaccine during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In fact it is recommended that women be vaccinated after the first trimester of pregnancy

    Yes perfectly safe but apparently not in the first trimester.
    In fact it is recommended to have the FluVax as it can be quite serious if you get it while pregnant.
    I am 26 weeks (well tomorrow) and had mine on Monday.
